Hello, friends. I'm back from a lovely and restful vacation. We spent a couple of…
Well, well, well. Here it is, Monday morning already. Honestly, I don’t have much to show you. Oh, I did a lot this weekend. But nothing with pictures. At least not yet.
Mostly what I have is a “honey do” list with a bunch of stuff crossed off. For instance, the border is up in the computer room! And the pictures and stuff are back on the walls. I’ve ordered a curtain and now all we need is a rug. What a great feeling it is to have that room back to normal. Which also means that the mud room is back to normal. As in, all the stuff that was in the mudroom until it could go back in the computer room is now back in the computer room. Woo and also hoo.
Let’s see. What else did we cross off the list? The lawn is mowed. Cobblestones have been purchased for a new edge for an existing flower bed. The trim on the window and door by the deck has been painted. As have the stair risers coming off the deck. I’ve planned a week’s worth of meals, grocery shopped and prepped tonights’ dinner. A trip to the mall was made for a new cell phone for Hannah. It’s pink. She loves it. Did I mention that it’s pink?
Lest you think that everything that needed to get done actually did get done – we didn’t get mulch, we didn’t get new glasses for Dale and some new undies for me, and we didn’t get to take our usual Sunday drive.
As you may have noticed, most of the things that were accomplished were things that Dale had to do. (Have I ever told you about the division of labor in our household? Remind me to do that.) Mostly, all I had to do was supervise. Supervise meaning make sure that Dale doesn’t wander off and do things he’d rather be doing instead of things he’s supposed to be doing – the things on THE LIST. So, what’s a supervisor do while passing the time? Knit, of course.
I made decent progress on the Shapely Shawlette.
The color combination in this Koigu reminds me of the blooming lilacs in my yard right now. Don’t you think?
